- Chris played solo between Blues Traveler's sets. Track 6 cuts out
(see notes below).
Notes from Michael:
- Nak 300's>D6C, 1st gen, 2 channel mono, no NR
I caught The Hour at Kenny's Castaways in the Village. Then I headed
over to Nightingales (2nd Ave. @ 13th Street) to catch BT. This place
was just a bar. The band set up in front of a mirror, parallel with
the bar and there was about 8 feet between the band and the bar to
dance if one chose to do so (though I don't think there was ever more
than 4 or 5 people dancing, with me being one of them of course). I
came in during their first set and taped as much as I could. The band
played at ear damaging levels. After one song I remember John saying
to Chan, "why don't we turn down some?" and they lowered the volume a
little. Then they played a 2nd set.
After the 2nd set Chris Barron began a solo set. I let my tape deck
run and split with the band. Someone's girlfriend (I'm pretty sure it
was John's) had an apartment around the corner and we walked up 4
flights of stairs or so to party there for a while. When we got back
to the bar my equipment was still there, though the tape had run out.
The band got behind Chris and started to play Cleopatra's Cat with
him. This was followed by the rest of Blues Traveler's 3rd set. At
some point I discovered that only one of my mics had been on (bummer,
remember I had set up in a hurry). I therefore decided to dub the
master down to a two channel, mono, 1st gen cassette using a splitter.
When I did this I put the fragment of Chris Barron's solo set at the
end of the 3rd BT set just for tape space reasons. Due to the tape
running out it wasn't continuous anyway.
